a place for zinesters - writers and readers
i think they (Hannah and Amber) are annoyed with this site for a lot of reasons, but i wouldn't call it arrogance.
I'm annoyed because I'll be reading a thread about something that interests me, and then it will get derailed into name calling and pointless circular arguing, and then the original interesting discussion between mature adults will never actually happen. Poor Krissy had to actually post rules for conduct on the front page.
I stopped using the forum for a while because it irritated me so much, then I decided to start using it again and try to push against the tide by regularly starting positive discussion threads, but really, it makes no difference. I won't bother in future. I enjoyed using the forums before they were flooded with idiocy.
Whenever I log on here I'm overwhelmed by all the negativity.
That's what's getting to me. I don't find anything else really annoying.
if you're annoyed, stop reading the posts.
WMZ is a GREAT site, and has lots of potential beyond the forum. it's a phonebook of zinesters, it's the new pander, the new zine guide. i can get on here, search for a zinester, find them, and say "what's your address?"
